Carl’s Jr will find a home on Queen West
The U.S. burger chain, best known for its unwavering dedication to the axiom “sex sells,” has reportedly chosen the location of its first Toronto restaurant. According to a building application unearthed by BlogTO, the city’s first Carl’s Jr. will be housed in the former HMV building at 272 Queen West, at Beverley Street. For those who aren’t well versed in Carl’s Jr. lore, the chain’s signature menu item is the Six Dollar Burger—so named (without a ton of foresight, it seems) because $6 was around the price people expected to pay for a fancy restaurant hamburger back in 2001. The burger chain’s northern expansion plans, which were unveiled last March, will see 30 outlets opening across Ontario in the next six years.
